A wonderful, and thought provoking, book about our finite life as humans. If we live to be eighty years old, we’ll have had four thousand weeks to grow, age, and everything in between. Burkeman explores ways we should think about our time, pulling in wisdom and thoughts from many different sources, be it philosophers, spiritual practitioners or time-management gurus. In an age when social media, combined with the ease of global travel, makes our bucket lists longer, and our possibilities endless, he brings insight into the many ways we can stop ourselves from going mad with FOMO, and instead take joy in the things we do have time for. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

That, more or less, is our allotted time on earth. Yet many of us act as if our time is limitless, while conversely trying to manage it to the nth degree. Burkeman offers potent tips to make us stop looking at the clock, and start realizing that the only time we have is right now. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

I adored every page of this warm hug of a book. Each chapter is a "life raft" as described by Matt Haig himself, meant for anyone who may be struggling through a challenging time. This series of reflections highlights both the beauty and the pain of being alive, and emphasizes the miracle of our very existence. Hopeful, insightful, and uplifting, this collection of reflections has earned a resounding 5 stars from me. ~ Reviewed by Madison Gallup
